Thank you, please forgive the lateness of my reply because I had to live without internet for the past three weeks due to some storms in my homeland last month. -- Matthew RD 17:55, 6 March 2014 (UTC)

The page linked by the bot shows ratings for 2012, and The Tunnel is not listed on the page. So a source is still needed for the comments on ratings or viewership in the UK. --Prairieplant (talk) 03:40, 1 August 2016 (UTC)

In re: GA review[edit]

It is indeed en route to being a good article. But, until someone: (1) Checks all lede sentences against the main body, to ensure the lede summarises the main body, and presents no original, unsourced material; (2) Reduces lede length by a third or so, so that it is commensurate with an article of its current length, for it appears now to be much more than a concise summary; (3) Checks citations appearing against content, to make sure that material is actually properly sourced, and not only apparently so; and (4) Ensures that all content, including cast listing, is sourced, in some fashion, then it is not yet GA. MBTA ("much better than average"), yes. GA, no, only by faith/assumed quality, and not by checked quality.

As for that, the spot checking I did—looking at selective parts and sentences, and finding mis-used and missing sources—says that the foregoing work needs to be done. Le Prof 73.211.138.148 (talk) 08:00, 20 September 2016 (UTC)

third season of The Tunnel[edit]

  • www.datereliz.com/serials/tunnel-season-3-release-date.html
"The Tunnel season 3 release date is planned by Sky Atlantic for the spring of 2017. The date release of The Tunnel season 3 on DVD and Bluray will probably happen in summer of 2017."

Will there be a third season of The Tunnel? This source says so, but is it credible? Seems more like speculation than solid... Please add any well-sourced related info to the article. -71.174.180.38 (talk) 22:29, 28 September 2016 (UTC)
